Android 4.1 JellyBean Lifts Features From Windows Phone

At Google I/O conference today, Google announced the next version of Android OS called Jelly Bean. One of the major features they announced today is called “Project Butter”. Its nothing but a internal codename at Google to make Android touch experience smooth as Windows Phone or iOS. They claim that now Android offers touch responsiveness without any lagging! At last, they have made it in v4.1.

What I noticed was a feature from Windows Phone made into Android Jelly Bean. We all love the camera experience on Windows Phone which is fast and fluid. You can take a photo on view finder, the photo transitions to the left and you can swipe the left side of the screen to see the photo you took. You can share the photo right from there. And while you are browsing the photos, you can pinch out to see the filmstrip view of photos to quickly browse through them. So this whole experience is now part Android Jelly Bean. What a steal!  First Apple did it, now Google.
